I have been teaching math for several years now and understand the need for a good foundation. I work with students to find any concepts they have missed or do not fully understand. My goal in teaching math is always comprehension not grades. After laying a good foundation, it is amazing to see the improvement and success my students have had!

If you are seeking to develop the skills necessary to become a competent guitarist that can find comfortability playing in any genre, you have come to the right place! I am a touring rock and metal musician and have been playing guitar and drums professionally for 14+ years, with 4 LPs under my belt along with numerous singles, splits and EPs. In my lessons, we will explore various techniques and topics ranging from basic music theory topics like the circle of fifths to advanced techniques such as sweep picking and tapping. I emphasize not only understanding the skills one needs to play their favorite riffs but developing an ear for relative pitch, songwriting and the tone one desires to achieve what they are hearing in their head. My genre specializations are in rock and heavy metal. All skill levels are welcome!

About Nicholas

Hey there! My name is Nick Z. and I am a gigging guitarist, drummer, and songwriter in various rock and metal bands. As a guitarist of 14 years and drummer of 12 years, I have recorded numerous albums, singles, and splits of my own original music and music written collaboratively with band members.

As an instructor, I’ve found Nicholas incredibly helpful in learning guitar. I truly appreciate Nicholas’ patience, guidance and his command of musical theory. I would highly recommend him for learner’s of any level!

Nick is an incredibly talented guitarist, let alone musician overall. His mastery of the instrument from basic chords to intricate scales, harmonies, and counterpoint makes him a great candidate as a guitar instructor!

Parking Lots and Poetry, Francesca's award winning album was received in 2010 to rave reviews. “Francesca’s songs have great musicality and the lyrical quality of a real poet.

Francesca is wonderful. My son has developed a love of learning piano and reading music. He looks forward to every lesson. I have never had to remind him to practice- he seeks opportunities to share what he is learning and is eager to share his progress with Francesca every week. She is supportive and motivating. I know she loves to develop a love music in her students by her obvious dedication to developing their love and understanding of music.
Nicole L.
My 7 year old son won't stop singing so I figured I'd put him in some lessons. She's a good mix of patient and fun while still keeping him on track. I thought it would just be a lot of scales, but she teaches him all aspects about singing/performance and uses his favorite genres to teach them. Excellent instructor!
Andrea D.
I've been working with Francesca for a few months now, and I feel I've grown so much. Prior to this I've sparsely attempted to play instruments, but she has taken her knowledge and passion and been able to pass that on to me while constantly reminding me that one day I will be good. And I believe it! I've come a long way to establish a regular practice routine, still working on it with her, and I have high expectations for the future. I recommend her to my own people and I recommend her to you.

Keaton is an awesome instructor! I really like the fact that he “tailors” his lessons to meet the needs of his students. He has a good sense of humor and it is fun to learn Spanish with him. He also has a very positive attitude. I highly recommend Keaton if you are looking for a tutor!

Kerstin has been a great tutor for our son. Not only does he enjoy working with Kerstin, but his German skills have noticeably improved (along with his grades). Kerstin is a great communicator, always on-time, never cancelled and very easy to work with. I would highly recommend Kerstin.

"Lessons with Mr. Chase were given to our daughter when she turned 13. My daughter loved taking guitar lessons with Chase. He is a very nice teacher, always on time, never missed a lesson. Kept my daughter challenged and each lesson was a step beyond the previous. They would have impromptu jam sessions and he would often stay over the scheduled time if she needed extra help. We only stopped taking lessons because he moved out of state."

50+ Best Acapella Songs for Girls, Guys, Groups & More | TakeLessons

Every singer should have a few traditional and contemporary acapella songs under their belt. Many times, singers are required to sing acapella at auditions - without an accompanist or background track. Music directors often ask singers to sing acapella in order to hear and test their musicality and stamina. (Acapella singing requires that these skills be sharp!) It also shows that you’re able to be a leader, and that you're comfortable having the spotlight on you as a solo singer. If …
